Blackpool News and Form – Pool’s unbeaten league run to stretch to five games?

Blackpool drew with Bolton Wanderers in their last league matchup, with the game at the University of Bolton Stadium ending in a pretty uninspiring 0-0 draw. However, that result did extend their unbeaten run to four League One matches.

The Seasiders have hit back well after suffering back-to-back league defeats to Coventry City (3-2) and MK Dons (3-0), winning two and drawing two of their last four in League One. Pool currently sit fourth in the table after 12 matches.

Bet at 22Bet


Blackpool are certainly in the mix for promotion at present, and bet365 have them nicely priced at 6/1 to be promoted to the EFL Championship come the end of the season. Meanwhile, you can get them at 20/1 to win the division.

After drawing a blank at Bolton on Monday, the Tangerines will be hoping to return to winning ways at the weekend.

Rotherham United News and Form – Can the Millers make it three wins in a row?

Rotherham United’s stay in the Championship lasted just one season, as Paul Warne’s men were relegated along with Ipswich Town and Bolton last term. The Yorkshire club have made a slow start to this campaign, taking just 15 points from their opening ten league fixtures.

Last time out in League One, though, Rotherham thumped high-flying Coventry 4-0 at the New York Stadium, with two goals each from Matt Crooks and Michael Smith doing the business. United followed that up with a 3-2 victory over Doncaster Rovers in the Football League Trophy on Tuesday night.

Rotherham would love an instant return to the Championship, and three points at Bloomfield Road on Saturday could kick-start a promotion push. At the time of writing, Warne’s troops are available at 19/10 to leave Blackpool with a valuable three points in the bag.

Blackpool v Rotherham United Predictions

Blackpool win: This fixture could go either way on Saturday. The Seasiders have won two and drawn two of their last four in League One, while the Millers picked up a handsome 4-0 win over Coventry in their last league encounter.

With this one taking place at Bloomfield Road, Blackpool could just edge it. With that in mind, my money is going on the narrow home win at 7/5.

Rotherham have been scoring at will in front of goal of late, netting seven times in their last two league and cup affairs. I fancy them to score in defeat on Saturday. The home side to win and both teams to score is available at 15/4.
